STILL Game actor Gavin Mitchell has backed the wearing of his Facemasks revealing he has lost friends through coronavirus.

The TV star, famed for his portrayal of  'Boaby the Barman' on the BBC comedy series, took to Twitter to share an image of a Still Game themed facemask featuring a twist on one of the show's many famous catchphrases, 'Two-metres p***k'.

Gavin, 55, said: "I'd rather wear a mask than a ventilator. Think beyond yourself. No to no masks."

One Twitter follower then replied to his tweet saying: "Why not put yourself in a panic room for the rest of your life Gavin?"

The actor replied: "I have lost friends and have other permanently damaged through Covid.

"Why not do a simple thing to protect yourself and others, and keep things at bay rather than being a thoughtless selfish a**e."

In Scotland, the wearing of facemasks is mandatory in shops and on public transport.
